"In line with the England DNA playing style, it is important that we test ourselves against top opposition and Germany will provide that challenge," said head coach Steve Cooper.

"It’s an exciting chance for the players to play at a great stadium and in front of a live TV audience – an experience they may have to get used to further down their international journey.

"Hopefully there will be a good crowd there backing us and we can provide another important international learning opportunity for the group."

Tickets for the game are on sale now and priced at just £3 for adults and £1.50 for children/OAPs.

The last time Rotherham played host to an England v Germany encounter was in April 2014 when Neil Dewsnip’s U18s side came from behind to record an impressive 2-1 victory.
